Miles Davis' Kind of Blue (1959) was such a ground-breaking recording that books have been written about it. The original LP sold millions (no small feat for a jazz recording), simultaneously launching a musical genre (cool jazz) and elevating Miles Davis to legendary statusâ€”all from two recording sessions over two days in March and April of 1959. Nearly every track is considered a jazz classic that may be heard in any number of live jazz venues on any given night; their simplicity belies their genius. This review focuses on the 1997 CD reissue of this classic, but also discusses the various other formats and mixes. Discuss "Miles Davis: Kind of Blue CD Review (1997 Reissue)" here. Read the article.
